Fans who listen to Like a Rose will notice a live quality to the music.  The music was recorded with the band playing in a circle and Ashley performing her vocals on the spot.

“Everyone put everything we had into the songs,” Ashley says.  “There was a buzz in the room.  We all had fun — it felt like a big old family, the way records used to be made.”

Ashley isn’t slowing down after completing Like a Rose though. Her Pistol Annies band mate Miranda Lambert tweeted Monday, ” Today we start record number 2 for @PistolAnnies! Can’t wait till y’all hear this stuff!”
